This past weekend I was fortunate to be invited to join a badass group of Surf Moms -Escaping their kids and taking some time out of their daily grind to enjoy each others company, catch some waves and have a good laugh along the way. As always, camera in hand I was there to capture the best (and worst moments). Here’s some of my favorite images from the weekend for you to enjoy. If you’re looking at finding a rad bunch of women (moms and non moms) to go surfing and on adventures with, I recommend you take a little trip on over to www.sandiegosurfladies.com and sign yourself up! Here’s a couple of my fav photos from our weekend…..enjoy – Ashleigh
We’ve been super excited since our local street was newly paved last week and is the ultimate skate heaven for us girls. The afternoon waves were a little mixed up with a strong onshore – so we grabbed the boards and cruised Neptune to shoot the anticipated HerWaves ‘Rolling Single’ Tank.

With the past couple months bringing less than exciting swell and keeping us photographers dodging rain showers, many emails have been appearing in my inbox asking for all kinds of ‘other’ photography. Usually I’ve got weeks of surf photo shoots scheduled in my diary, and am up to my eyeballs in edits for wave hungry surfers. This little bit of unusual downtime for me has been super exciting and allowed me to branch out from my daily norm and embark on exciting projects with incredible people.
I first met Jennipher founder of Her Waves through my surf photography not too long after I’d started out. I snapped a few pics of her surfing at Beacons and she’s always frequently turned up to shoots and collected some amazing shots of herself surfing. She approached me to help with photos for her awesome start up brand ‘Her Waves’ that she needed for her website, social media. I love new and exciting projects and especially with companies that rally resonate with my core values. It’s been so awesome to work with her on this fun project, and I’m excited for many more to come.
Many of you may have seen my recent model search post. I was totally overwhelmed with your support. Over 250 people reached out to help and I’ve been stoked to be able to include so many of you in some fun projects over the coming month – THANK YOU ALL!!!
So here’s a few pics from our shoot at Beacons last weekend. Rain threatened (as usual this winter) but somehow luck was on our side – the clouds parted, sun shone and even the surf turned on! Here’s a little peek of some of the shots from the session below – and don’t forget to check out www.herwaves.com for THE MOST AWESOME apparel for surf girls!
